    Hi guys,

    Circa 6 weeks ago I bought my first MacBook Pro (13''). I went to UK and I bought EU to UK adapter but I don't know which fuse I should pick?

    The charger for macbook properties are:

    60W, 100/240V, 50/60Hz
    Input: 1.5A
    Output: 3.65A

    Can you help me? I need to charge my battery...

    Fuse for what? Don't you just plug the adapter into the wall and attach your MagSafe brick into that?

    The power charger itself is universal (100-240V, 50hz/60hz) so all you need is the correct mains/wall socket plug for your country.

    But the connector that you plug into socket have place for fuse and you can put 3A, 5A and 13A fuse and I don't know which one is correct

    Isn't the fuse boy the place to put the fuses into? Anyway, a 3 Ampere (3A, though I never heard of such a weak fuse) fuse will suffice, even at 100 V, as that is 300 W power (P = U times I; P - Watt, U - Volt, I - Ampere).

    Where I live we have 16 A fuses, sometimes 10 A fuses, for our circuits at home or in the office. Though I also work with 32 A, 63 A and 125 A, but that is for the light equipment we sometimes use.

    All UK plugs have fuses in addition to the Breaker in the Consumer Unit.
    The correct fuse to use would be either 3A or 5A. Most plugs come with 13a fuse but would not recommend that.
